Raggedy Anne & Andy

Hello there!  Today I have a Valentine's Day card I made for my Mom to show to you  =)

My Mom's  name is Anni but because of her different spelling of her name, everyone for some reason seems to call her Anne so I thought that it would be cute to give her a card with Raggedy Anne on it, so I guess my Dad is now Andy, he he he

Every year since I was a very little girl I would ALWAYS give my Mom a Valentine from me, and even though I am now married and not living at home, the tradition still continues!  My Mom will always be my Valentine no matter what  =)

Here is a picture of my card for Mom....
What do you think of the perfect satin bow?? 
Well here is a little TIP:  I cut a piece of ribbon and made it into a circle and tacked it with a tiny glue dot, then I cut a piece of ribbon just a little longer than the card and put it behind the circle ribbon I made.  Then I took a brad and put the ribbon through the center prongs and tightened them around the ribbon circle & ribbon strand, and Voila! a perfect bow with ribbon for your card =)
